Proof That Viserion Is A Wight On 'Game Of Thrones,' & Not An Ice Dragon Or A White Walker

HBO

Game of Thrones fans have officially seen the return of Viserion, Dany's beloved dragon who was killed by the Night King last episode and subsequently reanimated by him in the end. This twist had a lot of people wondering how exactly Viserion would return. Would he be a white walker or a wight? After all, these are two very different things and it can sometimes be confusing to distinguish between the two. Well, now we have proof that Viserion is a wight on Game of Thrones.

You see, white walkers were created by the Children of the Forest and they are pretty clean and put together. Wights are reanimated corpses that are decaying and decomposing. That is why there are a bunch of them that are legitimately just bones rattling around and screaming. When Viserion came swooping into the picture tonight at the end of the Game of Thrones season finale, his wings were tattered and appeared to be decomposed to some degree. He's also not an ice dragon, since they're their own species and they breathe cold, not blue fire.

What does this mean? Well, Viserion can be killed by fire if he is a wight. This means that his brothers, Drogon and Rhaegal, can kill him in battle if they hit him with their flames. Of course, this would be so sad to see but it might become necessary at some point since the Wall has officially come tumbling down and the great war has now commenced.

Poor Viserion, he is just a reanimated killing machine, but he is still vulnerable to his brothers' greatest weapons. Game of Thrones fans are in for one hell of a final season — and a pretty sad one too, for dragon fans.
